See the photos it's just a gorgeous piece with beautiful details. The bass has 2 inkwells they don't detach but date spin and the same with the lid it doesn't detach but they spin their beautifully hinged lids with acorn and leaves and striking sidewalls. Depends base has in the center a gladiator a symbol of strength and wisdom surrounded by floral design.
And the front corners extended out also with The feather arrows crossing the flame stick with garland. The weathered arrows crossing the flame stick is the symbol for something I'm not sure what but it's very beautiful. Then along the front is a flower and in the center between the inkwell is an angle with a shield. All the way around the bass is an ornate design with oak leaves at the corners.SEE ALL PHOTOS of the beautiful details and as part of description and condition. 8.5" pen well 1/2" deep.
